Our neighborhood loves to boo each other and this year we received the cutest boo on our door step. Apparently the neighbor who booed us knows we are expecting from all the little baby gifts that we received. Isn't that the cutest onesie ever? I can't wait for her to wear it next Halloween.
What is "booing" you ask? The purpose of booing your neighbor is to surprise them with candy and other fun Halloween items and leaving them on their doorstep. You have to fill a plastic bucket or pumpkin with a bunch of candy and Halloween trinkets including a poem and a "BOO" sign. The poem contains the instructions on what to do next once your received your boo. The boo sign hangs on your door so other neighbors know that you have already been "booed". You are supposed to create two boo packages similar to the one below for two other neighbors who have not yet been booed and secretly place them on their doorstep. You are then supposed to ring the doorbell and run so you don't get caught. We were totally busted this year by both neighbors who we tried to boo. Who is hanging out by their door at 9pm at night? I am thinking these neighbors were anxious to receive their boo gifts from us, I know I would be :)
The air is cool, the season is fall
soon Boo's will come to all.
The treat that came with the special note
Is yours to keep, enjoy them both.
The fun comes with friends like you
now copy this and make it two.
Then others here among our friends,
will give warm fuzzies that will never end.
We'll all have smiles upon our face,
no one will know who BOOed each place.
Just one short day to work your fun,
or a big ZAP will strike, SO RUN!
And don't forget a nifty treat,
like something cute or something sweet.
Please join the fun, let's really hear it,
and spread some Boo's and lot's of spirit.
1. Enjoy your treat.
2. Place the picture of your BOO on your front door.
3. Now you have 24 hours to copy this twice, make 2 treats and 2 BOO's and secretly deliver them to 2 neighbors who do not have BOO on their front door.
4. Then watch how far this spreads by Halloween.
